Newey Group has announced the takeover of Roundstone Nurseries.
The operational control of the Roundstone Groups business will now be conducted by the Newey Groups management team.
The team will be made up of key personnel from both Roundstone and the other companies with both groups.
The directors will be Martyn Thomas, Miranda Rijks and Alex Newey, with Peter Cook staying on as a non-executive director until the end of April.
Retired director Chris Need will take up a senior operational and technical role, developing technical areas such as peat-free.
Managing director Newey said: “People are key in any business, none more so than here at Roundstone so I will be looking to maximise their talent and expertise to strengthen the infrastructure across the board in functions such as IT, sales, finance and HR.
“There are obvious synergies to both groups and the incorporation of our businesses will create benefits for all involved.
“What we are creating is a strong base for future growth where we can provide outstanding products using modern facilities with exceptionally talented people.
“This is a progressive move and secures the way forward for a sustainable and growing contribution to the horticulture industry.”
